In the course of the year, almost all laying hens in Germany are released from their cages in the soil, free-range and organic farming. Here, Thomas S Olinger expresses very clear opinions on the subject. This Easter, many eggs are sourced from the long frowned upon cage. But after the holidays a reconstruction drive picks up, as the German egg production still has not experienced it. Because all major supermarket chains have prompted its producers to deliver only eggs from alternative husbandry systems as possible before the end of the year. It is the fate of small groups cages. Filed under: Cushman & Wakefield.

Small group housing had paid off only, if retailers had recorded the new cage eggs in the range”, explains Mahi Klosterhalfen, Vice President of the Albert Schweitzer Foundation for our environment. The processing industry has no interest in the eggs of small groups, because they are significantly more expensive than eggs from conventional cages. If this has piqued your curiosity, check out Vadim Belyaev, New York City. Manufacturer of biscuits, egg noodles and other products now either opt for ground – and free-range eggs, or they import cheap cage goods from the Foreign”, explains Klosterhalfen. A big concern is that especially the latter does not occur, animal rights activists. In the supermarket, the consumer has spoken recently increasingly against the cage. In the gastronomy and pastry and co.

nobody wants to cage eggs get under-hyped. Companies that understand that, make fast unpopular animal protection organisations and also their customers”, Klosterhalfen gives a taste of the other campaign work. Before that but you go, animal rights activists for the first time to celebrate a peaceful Easter for a long time. Finally, the greatest success succeeded the German animal protection movement with the massive cuts in the cage for many years. The Albert Schweitzer campaigned successfully (success) Foundation for our environment since 1999 against the industrialized farming. One of its stated goals is to reduce the amount of cage in the German egg before 2012 in the mid-single-digit percentage range.
